Scope and Contents

Produced annually by the Sports Information Office, the softball programs and guides in this collection contain a wide range of information about softball at Tech, including the season's rosters, profiles and photos of the coaches and players, statistics, outlines of the team's history, recaps of the previous season, records, and schedules of the upcoming season's games. Most of the publications were apparently produced for the media. While the guides from the early 1990s consist of only about 15 pages, the later publications are more substantial (about 50 pages for the 2006 guide).

The Archives' holdings include an annual publication for 1992 and 1993, 1995, 2000 through 2004, and 2006.

History of the Softball Program at Tech

The first year that Georgia Tech formed an intercollegiate softball team was 1987. Coached by six different coaches during the first four seasons, Tech hired Regina Tomaselli as head of the softball program for the 1991 season. During her eight seasons as coach, Tomaselli guided the team to a winning record six times. Kate Madden took over the team in 1999 and remained until 2003, posting a winning record for four of five seasons. From 2004 through 2006, Ehren Earleywine served as softball coach; during his tenure, the team were ACC regular-season and tournament champions. In 2007, Sharon Perkins, who had served as assistant coach at the University of Georgia for several years, assumed the position of head coach at Tech. Perkins led the team to four straight appearances in the NCAA tournament and two ACC regular-season and tournament championships (in 2009 and 2010).
